Texas man 'fractures' penis after taking sex pill

 

Even though Adrian Carter of Texas blames the supplement for the incident, three urologists said that penile fractures are most often the result of rough sex.
 
According to the lawsuit in the district court of Harris County, Texas, the 29-year-old said he purchased VirilisPro in the “early morning hours” at a Chevron gas station en route to the Scottish Inn, where he had sex with his “paramour”.
 
Later, during intercourse, he had “significant pain and observed a large quantity of blood squirting out of his penis onto the sheets, walls and mirror”.

Emergency room doctors had to “deglove” Carter’s penis in order to repair it, rendering him unable to have sex or future children, Carter claimed.
 
The lawsuit said VirilisPro was “defective and unreasonably dangerous for use by consumers.”
 
“It was pretty horrific to view the pictures,” ABC News quoted Carter’s lawyer Melissa Moore as saying.
 
“I know it sounds unusual. ... He was young and healthy and on no other meds at the time he took the supplement,” Moore said.
 
Drug manufacturer, Haute Health Limited Liability Company, Carney and Carney Financial Services, individuals Michael Heilig and Michael and Tyra Carney, and Solid Rock Worship Company, were named in the lawsuit.
 
Carter is seeking medical expenses and punitive damages for product liability, negligence, breach of warranty, deceptive trade, mental anguish, pain and suffering and “past and future loss of consortium” from VirilisPro.
 
He alleged that when he purchased the supplement, the store clerk suggested the product as "natural and safe."
 
Even though Carter’s doctor “directly linked” the penis injury to the supplement, urologists said penile fractures usually are caused by traumatic sexual intercourse.
 
According to Dr. Chad Ritenour, associate professor of urology at Emory University School of Medicine in Atlanta, they are fairly common and he sees a case, called “eggplant penis”, at least once a month.
 
“I never heard of anyone being put at a higher risk for fracture because of a prescription or an herbal drug,” Carney said.
 
“With a fracture, you typically get swelling and the penis looks like an eggplant -- purple and swollen. But blood coming out on the walls, that sound really dramatic.
 
“The typical story is that someone is having intercourse and, in the course of an erection, they miss an opening and hit a pelvic bone in their partner.
 
“In the classic case, you hear a ‘pop’ and feel something immediately,” he added.
